Rim Joist Air Sealing in Farmington, CT



 

This homeowner was experiencing a significant amount of humidity in their basement. Our Building Science Expert evaluated the problem and found that using the 2-part expanding foam insulation on the rim joist and over the sill plate would be the perfect solution. This decreased the humidity in the basement and the homeowner saw immediate results.  In addition to there being less humidity, the overall air leakage to the house was reduced dramatically.

TruSoft Cellulose Attic Insulation in Farmington, CT



This homeowner was experiencing a lot of air leakage in their attic. creating cold drafty rooms as well as heat loss in the winter. The heat loss created an increase in the cost of heating the home. By air sealing all of the gaps with our foam insulation and blowing in Dr. Energy Savers TruSoft cellulose insulation, it created a more comfortable environment for the entire home and family. Our TruSoft cellulose insulation is treated with natural borate compounds. By doing this we have created a higher R-value in the space as well as decreasing the energy costs, making the rooms below a comfortable living space for the customer and their family.

 

Insulating a Kneewall in Canton, CT



This room over the garage is being renovated.  The homeowner wanted to be sure his home is properly insulated.  One of the treatments our team did in this room was to insulate the kneewall.  A kneewall is the triangular space under the sloped roof and behind the wall of the room.  We installed our Foamax polyisocyanurate foam board on the exterior walls.  Foamax provides superior insulation and it is flame retardant.  The homeowner can rest assured the knee walls in this room are properly insulated. 

Air Sealing End Plates in West Simsbury, CT



End plates are at the top of every single wall in the home. The problem with end plates is there's generally a quarter inch to an inch gap left during construction of the home. This allows for air leakage which lets the cool air escape the home in the summer and warm air to escape in the winter.

When the hot air leaks into your attic in the winter, ice dams occur on your roof.  Ice dams can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your home! 

Air sealing end plates is the first, and most important, of multiple treatments to eliminate ice damming.

 

Basement Window Replacement in West Simsbury, CT



This homeowner wanted to reduce dampness in his basement.  This old window was not energy efficient which allowed a lot of air to leak into the home.  Homes have lower air pressure at the bottom and suck cold outside air into the home causing a cold basement and cold floors above.  Our team replaced this window with and Everlast basement window insert.  These windows feature 2 panes of high performance "Low E" glass, which allows light through but blocks most of the heat flow.  This homeowner will have more comfortable rooms and no more dampness in the basement.
